We loved this tour! Massimo is awesome! (we had him for another tour as well.) The hike is gorgeous, and the pizza is yummy (they also give you a complimentary drink - we chose wine and it was quite good.) Our pompeii guide was the perfect bit of sarcastic and funny...Extremely memorable. Thanks, guys! (Ps. It is a very long day so make sure you rest up the day/night before.)
A fantastic all day tour! Pompeii is amazing and our guide was very knowledgable about all the historical details. The bus ride was long but our guides gave us lots of information along the way. The included lunch was great too. This tour is a must for anyone with a spare day in Rome!
Another WINNER for Viator! This was an unbelievable experience! It was as if we had stepped back in time as we walked through the streets and visited the houses of Pompeii! Our guides were professional and experts in history. We learned (and saw!) a lot of really interesting things. I continue to be amazed at the ingenuity of the Ancient Romans. The hike up Vesuvius is certainly thrilling, and a "must do" on the bucket list, not to mention the views of Naples and the coast line from the summit of the volcano! One of our BEST tours. I don't think there is anyway one can "oversell" this tour...I definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Rome!
This tour was excellent. Our tour guide, Massimo, was entertaining and informative all the way to Pompeii. The hike up to the Mount Vesuvius crater was so exciting. It was very foggy during the climb, but cleared enough at the top for a great view of the crater. After a delicious pizza lunch, we met up with a tour guide from Pompeii who gave us a wonderful tour of the ancient city. My husband and I felt as though we learned more about history from that tour than we ever did in school. This tour is very worth the money.
We were a bit worried about a whole 13 hour day trip, but we shouldn't have. This tour was amazing. Our tour guides on the bus Sara and Anna were entertaining and very knowledgable about all things Italy. They made the 3 hour trip seem a lot quicker. Pompeii itself is a fantastic piece of history, brought to life with the enthusiasm and knowledge of our local guide Genaro. Our two boys, 11 and 9 thought it was great. Lunch was included and the quality and quantity far exceeded our expectations. Driving up mt Vesuvias was an experience, as was the 600 meter walk to the summit. We arrived back in Rome tired but excited by the day. Anyone interested in history and Pompeii should put this on the must do list.
Excellent tour, very knowledable and friendly guide. Had a great time, will highly recommend.
I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone interested in visiting Pompeii. The bus tour guides (Massimo and Valentina)were awesome! It was an all day tour but well worth the time.
Awesome tour of Pompeii and hike up Mount Vesuvius.
Two very good youg ladies tour guide (whose names have unfortunately escaped me) and driver (Mario). Bernadette, Pompeii guide was knowledgeable. Lunch was ok (pizza and salad).
Highly recommend this tour.
PS: Coach has seen better days.
Well worth the long day. Robert our quide was SUPER!!!Definately recommend it.
Fantastic tour. Our guides were very friendly and knowledgeable, telling great stories and making sure no detail was missed with great character and interest. They even made the history of lunch interesting. Never felt rushed or hurried. Plenty to see and do. Lunch provided. Easy instructions on where to meet group. Will recommend this to anyone I know who goes to rome. As a side note, the better souvenir shops are in Pompeii not Vesuvius.
This was a great tour. It was made most enjoyable by our guides Mike and Elena. They really made this day a memorable one, from the time we boarded the bus, until the time we finished the tour. They gave us information that we could understand not just names and dates. They paid attention to everyone, took the time to talk to everyone and just overall made you feel like they cared about you. They wanted us to enjoy the tour and they went out of their way to make sure we did. We had pizza for lunch and were given a choice as to what kind we wanted. It was very good. Climbing Mt. Vesuvius was a challenge, just wish we could have had more time to get to the top. Pompeii was wonderful. Our guide at Pompeii was very knowledgeable and patient. Her English was perfect. She encouraged us to ask questions and answered them all to our satisfaction. Overall this was a great experience. Mike and Elena, thanks for making our day one we won't forget. You deserve 5 Stars.
Guide made the day. She was very knowledgeable. Great day trip! The place we stopped at on the way had an issue with their toilets. Tour of the ruins was great. Would have liked a heads up on the visit to the brothel. We had out 12 year old grand daughters with us and there was no way out. Not something we wanted them hearing about. The place we stopped for lunch was basic. Versuvius was great! Would recommend this tour!
A few glitches that could not be helped but the driver and two tour leaders handled it professionally and always were there to help or explain
Tour leader at Pompeii was very knowledgable and made the tour fun and exciting
The tour group meeting location was easy to find, the tour guide in Pompeii was informative and well versed on the history of the area. The timing of activities was perfect for what we were seeking, with sufficient time to view the sites, but not so long that it became excessive. The hike up Vesuvius was steep, but the view at the top was well worth the effort.
This was a great tour that allowed us to see many attractions in Italy in a short time, and relieved us of the hassle of arranging our own transportation and hotels if we had tried to plan it all ourselves. Our tour guide, Alessandro was OUTSTANDING. He was affable, entertaining, extremely helpful, and very well organized. When we arrived at our hotels, he had the room assignments already arranged and personally handed out the keys right as we arrived. It was nice to have some meals included at the hotels, although my only negative comment is that sometimes the hotel staff didn't appear to be prepared for us at meal time and we were missing some basic things. Overall we loved the tour.
